“Long wait at brunch”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

The food was delicious as always but the long lines at brunch were disappointing. The set seating times meant that everyone was seated at the same time and waited in long lines for the buffet. If they staggered the reservations it would make the lines shorter and the wait staff not as harried.

“Food good...service sloth like”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

Took over 75 minutes to get our entree - nothing exotic, standard menu item order. Love the view...service is way too slow.

“Poor service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Great food, poor service. Arrived at 5:40 to a nearly empty Restaurant. It took nearly thirty minutes for salads. Had a question about the food prep, waitress never came back with the answer. Waited fifteen minutes after everyone was done, still no waitress. Finally had to ask the maitre'd for our bill.

Thank William C

“Excellent view and good food !!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We went here for dinner. Food was very good but it was one of the expensive ones. Restaurant is very spacious. It is by the side of river which can be seen inside from the restaurant. It has a big hall too which can be booked for any occasion, this hall has a terrace too from where you can enjoy the scenery!! Well people say this hall is little hanuted ;)..we had fun here..

“View of the Susquehana River - lovely”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Great location - relaxing lunch watching the river flow. This was my first visit, won't be the last. Menu choices - nice selection.
Understand they have live bands playing regularly - large facility.
